Make a colourful cover for your beige NHS hearing aid

The remnants bin at the local fabric shop was the site of an unseemly battle with a determined pensioner over some Lycra scraps. The pensioner won, holding aloft a prized shocking pink piece like a trophy scalp en route to the till, but I came off not too badly. I got enough bargain offcuts to fashion these prototype hearing aid covers, and about 500 more, should the need ever arise.

If you fancy having a go yourself, there’s a link to BatteryBot’s patent template below, and I’ll do a tutorial if anyone wants one. In the meantime, just hide any dodgy stitching on the side next to your head…

    Tks so much for this template! I’m going to attempt making several for a little 4 year old lady that wants to have some to match all of her clothes. Any more tips would be greatly appreciated. Wish me luck! Linda

      Hi Linda, hope you manage to create a fully co-ordinating wardrobe for wee toots’s hearing aids! Biggest tip is to keep the stitching loose enough to allow the seam to lie totally flat without bunching up…I’ll try and add a photo tutorial over the next few days to help with the fiddly bits 🙂

    Reblogged this on Unsuspicious. Unnoteworthy. Undetectable. and commented:
    I love this, it also keeps your ears a little warmer in the winter time when your hearing aids turn to ice!
